Monday, September 28, 2021 – Thursday, September 30, 2021 – Virtual

Our research associate Mirjam Kiener from the University of Bern will be sharing her research on SARS-CoV-2 infection models at the virtual conference “Organoids: Advances and Applications”.

During her oral presentation “AlvireX – an advanced drug screening platform for respiratory viruses”, Mirjam will introduce a versatile drug screening platform based on organoids and the AXLung-on-Chip System. By recreating alveolar barrier breakdown upon viral infection, this platform aims at accelerating drug development against respiratory viruses and providing valuable information on host-pathogen interactions in the distal lung.
